Society for Legal Scholars’ Inaugural Baroness Hale Lecture
Please note this event will be in-person only.
Join us for the Society for Legal Scholars’ Inaugural Baroness Hale Lecture to hear Baroness Brenda Hale in-conversation about her upcoming memoir Spider Woman: A Life.
Lady Hale won global attention in finding the 2019 prorogation of Parliament to be unlawful. Yet that dramatic moment was merely the pinnacle of a career throughout which she was hailed as a pioneering reformer.
From her journey from a small Yorkshire village to President of the Supreme Court, hear Lady Hale share the story of her astonishing career during which she smashed glass-ceilings and took as her motto 'women are equal to everything', her landmark rulings in areas including domestic violence, divorce, mental health and equality were her attempt to correct that.
